Senators: U.S. Forces at Risk Due to Syrian Chemical Weapons - DOTMIL. Several senators are raising concerns that unrest in Syria could allow that nation's chemical and other weapons to be used against U.S. forces and allies in the region.
"The growing breakdown of order and security in Syria could place its significant stockpiles of poison gases and operational chemical weapons at risk," Maine Republican Susan Collins, New York Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand, and New Hampshire Democrat Jeanne Shaheen wrote in a February 17 letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. DOTMIL obtained a copy of the letter. [See pictures of the violence in Syria] The senators want the Obama administration to spell out the planning it has done to prepare for and "address" the potential that the Assad regime's stockpiles of chemical weapons might go missing.
"In the event of a regime collapse, it is difficult to overstate the danger these weapons could pose to allies and U.S. forces in the region if they fall into the wrong hands," the letter states.

A missile hit his home near Homs 17 days go, but it took him two weeks to make it to a hospital. A siege by the Syrian Army around Khaled’s village of Qusayr, just 12 kilometers from the Lebanese-Syrian border, prevented his transfer to a hospital. Fifteen days after the missile fell, the Free Syrian Army took him and his father through a smuggling route to the border near Masharih al-Qaa in the northern Bekaa Valley.
